and what republicans are saying now is, you know, wait a minute, why should we trust government when we see, particularly in the case of the irs, what government overreach can do? take a listen to what some republicans are saying on the hill, chris. >> you know, thomas jefferson told us, when government fears the citizens, there is liberty. but when citizens fear the government, there is tyranny. irs, ap, benghazi tend to confirm a lot of our worst fears about our government. they tend to tell us what we don't want to believe but that sometimes might be true, that your government is targeting you, that your government is spying on you, and that your government is lying to you. >> this is runaway government at its worst. who knows who they'll target next. >> so, you know, about less than 30% of the people in this country trust the government to do the right thing all or most of the time.
